HOUSTON | Project Green Tower | 203 FT | 13 FLOORS

Project in brief: The site for this tower once was the home to the studios of KHOU-TV. The building was demolished in 2018 after flooding from 2017's Hurricane Harvey rendered the building unusable. The land that once held the studios and parking lot was sold to SCI (Service Corporation International) at the time demolition was taking place. The company has a site adjacent to the east of that piece of land where their headquarters is located in a 12-story building constructed in 1972.

The current plan is to construct the new tower and demolish the existing one, repurposing the land for a mixed-use development. The tower is expected to be built between 2023 & 2025. There is no timeline for the remainder of the development. Gensler is the architect.

Downtown Redevelopment board OKs $13.8M tax increment for new Service Corp. headquarters

By Erica Grieder,
Staff writer
Dec 13, 2023

Service Corp. International, the Houston-based funeral services giant, is expected to begin construction next year on a $150 million headquarters after the Downtown Redevelopment Authority on Tuesday authorized as much as $13.8 million in reimbursements for flood mitigation work at the site.

SCI's new tower, being developed by Hines, will be built at the former site of KHOU-TV studios, 1945 Allen Parkway, next to SCI's current offices. The roughly 900 employees will continue to work at the existing tower — which has been flooded several times — until the new building is finished.

City leaders described the move as a way to keep the historic company in the heart of Houston while improving public infrastructure along Allen Parkway and without the city incurring any upfront costs or taking on more debt.

SCI would receive the additional taxes created by the increased value of the new property, said Allen Douglas, the redevelopment board's chief operating officer, executive director and general counsel. The figure is based on the projected value of the improved site, he explained: "If SCI does not generate that amount of additional value through the construction of the new commercial building, it will not receive that amount of reimbursement."

Storm sewer / drainage infrastructure at this site is about to get underway. Not a surprise based on the history of the site.

Per the website for the infrastructure work, the stormwater vault will be topped by a pocket park.
